Tree Of Hope
Updated: Monday, October 7 2013, 03:12 PM EDT
A tree of hope is going up at MedWest Harris in Sylva to recognize those affected by cancer. Cards with handwritten notes will be placed on the tree this month. Survivors and victims of all cancers can be included. The project is in conjunction with October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's a type of cancer in which great strides have been made over the past 40 years. Studies show one in every two men, and one in every three women, will be diagnosed with some type of cancer during their lifetime. A Tree of Hope Ceremony will be held at Harris Medical Park October 8th at noon.
